Berkshire Hills, Berkshire County, MA

The Berkshire Hills Internship Program (B-HIP) is an intensive arts management internship program that combines hands-on work experience with classes taught by arts administration faculty, TalkBacks with the area's leading arts professionals, and the chance to fully participate in cultural events throughout Berkshire County.  B-HIP offers educational and career advancement opportunities that are hard to find elsewhere! 

Students are placed at  full-time upper-level internships tailored to their interests and skill sets. They have the opportunity to gain hands-on experience in development, marketing, film editing, arts education, programming and more. 

B-HIP interns attend a weekly  class, which gives them an opportunity to absorb and evaluate all they have learned on-site and on location. The mixture of theory and practice come together in a class designed for reflection and analysis.  

Interns also attend bi-weekly  TalkBacks. These sessions give interns the opportunity to meet, network with and learn from top-level arts management professionals in the Berkshires.  The guest speakers give back-stage tours of their institutions and offer candid "talk-back" information not generally available to students. 

Program usually runs each summer May through August.  See application for program costs and scholarship information. Check back to see if open to apply for Summer 2017!
